Pain

Has anyone else experienced slight dissatisfaction with the paint on the civic. I have a 2011 SI in Blue Sapphire and every other day i find a fine scratch or when I take it for a car wash there's always some sort of a blemish somewhere. Tried different car wash places also. Not sure if it's just me being a bit paranoid.

Do you guys use something in particular on the paint?

No trouble with my 2011 1-8 EX GT, polished metal. Just 2 small stonechips in 8000 mls.

Thereafter, never use a car wash with brushes !!!
